Girl Scouts is celebrating their 100th anniversary in 2012. Throughout the year, the Girl Scout Council of the Colonial Coast is displaying exhibitions at local museums and libraries in the region to celebrate this landmark year. These exhibits feature vintage uniforms, handbooks, and program memorabilia.
The exhibition at the Roanoke Island Festival Park is located in the Visitors Center and will include items from Mariner Girl Scouting, which was a special interest, water-based program for Girl Scouts that started in 1934. They had unique blue uniforms and participated in activities such as charting courses, launching ships, and learning about water safety and boating. This exhibition also highlights camping, which is one of the original and current appeals of Girl Scouting. Featuring uniforms, guidebooks, and other camping memorabilia, viewers will get a sense of how camping has changed through the decades.
